Overview

Reflecting on the health crises now facing us and on the connection between the rise in chronic immune disorders and toxic environmental and lifestyle patterns, Elias and collaborator Katherine Ketcham looked to the 5,000-year-old account of Chinese medicine, The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Medicine, to seek the clues for restoring the balance of body and mind and finding the pathway to health and harmony. The result is The Five Elements of Self-Healing, which shows readers how to use the preventive strategies and gentle, supportive remedies of traditional Chinese medicine to heal contemporary chronic illnesses and bolster immunity, wellness, and mind-body harmony. The Five Elements of Self-Healing explores the Five Element System, the unique classification and diagnostic system that is the basis of traditional Chinese medicine. With step-by-step instructions for self-treatment, inspiring case studies of Elias's patients' recoveries, and engaging stories from diverse folk traditions, The Five Elements of Self-Healing creates a system of medicine that honors the whole person: Body and mind and spirit.

"...expounds upon the strategies of over 5,000 years of Chinese medicine...explains how health relates to the five elements: earth, fire, water, metal, and wood."

    Excellent Work

    I am attending college and one of my classes is Applications of Color and Light. We touched briefly on Fung Shuei and this book was introduced in our class.I was blown away by how in depth the authors go in explaining the elements and how u can tell. I have discovered that I am a fire type and am going out to buy this book and am reccomending it to many of my friends!!
